This is a big milestone for ForgeRock and the OpenAM project, an open source WebSSO, Authentication, Authorization, Federation and Entitlements solution. After months of development (a few more than we anticipated), we’ve finally released OpenAM 10.0.0, a major version of the product.
OpenAM 10 brings a set of new features, including support for OAuth 2.0 client authentication, the ForgeRock Identity Gateway (built out of project OpenIG), enhanced SAML 2 identity provider capabilities, a new Risk Based Authentication module, … It also now relies on OpenDJ 2.4.5, the latest stable release of OpenDJ the open source LDAP directory server, and supports the internet-draft based LDAP password policy. You can find more details in the press announcement, or the product release notes. The documentation of the OpenAM 10 release can be read at http://docs.forgerock.org/en/index.html?product=openam&version=10.0.0.
The OpenAM 10 release owes a lot to the OpenAM community, for the issues raised : a total of 41 issues fixed in OpenAM 10 were raised by 26 different persons, and for the generous patches offered to fix over a dozen of these issues.
To each and every contributor : THANK YOU !
